How is it that I look forward to weekends even though I'm a work-at-home-mom? It's not like a LOT changed in my day from a weekday to a weekend! ... I suppose I just like having my peeps around even though we tend to do our own thing most of the day. I DO have reason to celebrate the weekend THIS week ... NO WORKOUT TOMORROW!! Woo Hoo!! Oh. Em. Gee. I've been doing my new T25 workout videos ... and I can't believe I'm still alive! *lol* Monday was a cardio workout. I made it to the end but seriously - I thought I was going to throw up. And really. Should a woman at my age and in my level of fitness (or lack thereof) REALLY be doing "jump squats" ... REALLY?? OBVIOUSLY Shaun T has never had children. I won't provide you with a graphic overshare on the workings of my bladder control but let's just say jumping jacks + squats + 2 litres of water are NOT a good combo! Just sayin'!! Tuesday - Thur were all different videos working different areas. Some I nailed ... some not so much. Today was a fresh new hell as I got to do TWO of them back to back. Oh yes - 25 minutes of agony wasn't enough. Shaun recommends TWO workouts on Friday "but if that's too much don't stress about it, just do the second one on the weekend". Uh, ya, Shaun. Right. Given that my legs were so shaky after the "lower focus" workout I had to hold onto both handrails going down the stairs I figured I'd be lucky if I could STAND on the weekend, let alone workout ... so I pushed through another 25 minutes of cardio. Whilst I didn't feel like throwing up this time it wasn't my idea of a great time. The only thing keeping me going was knowing that I didn't have to do it tomorrow!!! So YAY for Friday!! ... and bring on 9 Friday's from now when I'll (apparently) be "Beach Ready" ...... or in traction ... time will tell *lol*
SOOOOOO! My organizing / purging / sorting has slowed down a bit the last 2 days. Not just because all I get accomplished by noon is working out, walking the dog and showering but also becasue the "fun" organizing / purging / sorting had been done. Now it's the REALLY time-consuming stuff that makes me not wanna play anymore. I managed to get down there last night for Rebecca / Mom time and while she painted I made cards. That's one of my projects! I have a box FULL of all the old "left overs" from old parties and classes. Ziplock bags FULL of cut card stock. Sounds like it should be quick to slap the cards together since they are already designed and cut right? Ya, no. Not in my world. First of all I'm lucky if I can figure out which card was MADE with which bag of stuff ... and then I have to hope I still own the stamp set that I used ... and then I have to still LIKE the original card I made. See? It's complicated! Be that as it may I pressed on ... and managed to purge one bag of templates. The first card came from the leftovers from this Christmas card:
I grabbed another stack of templates and made them up pretty much as-was ... I just changed the sentiment to one from the current hostess set "Express Yourself". This was a CASE of a Mary Fish Card:
So that's what I've been up to ... oh! I DID make an easter card with this template that looks NOTHING like the original card. I'll a) find it b) take pics of it tomorrow and c) post it. Until then, have a stampy Friday!!!
